  • Description

    American military parade during

    World War One; celebrating arrival of US troops in Britain; 1917 A great many soldiers arching down London streets; wearing big coats; and the beret type hats; not the wide-brimmed. First shot of them marching toward camera. Then aerial shot; panning from farther up the street as the soldiers march in long lines; going 'downward' on the screen. Street side view of same.

    CU of some dignitaries watching the Americans - Army officer is talking to a man bundled up in a coat and wearing a top hat. 2 of these top hat types hold their hats in respectful attitude. Soldiers march toward camera; USA flag and another flag of the military unit. Then nice shot; of the soldiers marching away from the camera; off into the sunset it seems; because they are heading toward the light.
